    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Dec 3, 2012

    The plot remains very straight forward and that's hardly a bad thing. It's clear this story's objective is to win us over with big laughs and even bigger action, and so far it is absolutelysucceedingin that regard. I'm adoring this series, but I'm really excited to see what the comedic duo has up their sleeve for the next and allegedly darker story. They've proven they can make Deadpool kick-ass and make me laugh, but I'm curious to see how well they'll develop him and dive into his internal dilemmas. In the meantime, this is a must read if you're a fan of the Merc with a Mouth. Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Jan 24, 2013

    This was another fabulous issue and this is looking to be one of the best Deadpool series ever. It's a very fun series with ton's of jokes, some good, some bad, and full of brilliant action packed fights. I would highly recommend this issue as well as the entire series so far, and am looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Hamilton Ortiz Dec 11, 2012

    Most readers love a serious high end story line and rightfully so with how expensive a comic can be but we all can use a break from all the world ending encounters issue after issue in other series's and enjoy Deadpool for what it is. To describe the series using my now Internet famous catch line for DP “A balls to the wall action series” with cheesy funny jokes. Highly recommended especially for its $2.99 price point.

    Blue Raven Comics - Garry Robertson Dec 18, 2012

    Another brilliant issue, as the presidents trade insults with Deadpool and, indeed, themselves, full of off the cuff humour and brilliant references throughout. I need a Deadpool fix more often, but as Marvel's release schedule is so messed up at the moment, it's nearly a weekly, which suits me fine. A very well-deserved 9/10. Read Full Review

    Similar to the Matt Fraction/David Aja collaboration on the Earth's Mightiest Archer book, I have nothing but praises to sing for Deadpool. Hopefully the quality of the series will continue to stay at this level. Additionally, I hope that they continue reference Franklin's crazy sexcapades more often because those lines are certainly very welcome. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Tommy Lutz Dec 5, 2012

    This issue, like the entire series is funny, witty and against the grain with balls to the wall action. For fans of Deadpool returning and new readers with a taste for violence and humor mixed together, this series should not be missed. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Robert Bernstein Dec 6, 2012

    Posehn and Duggan have written another hilarious Deadpool comic. If you've ever heard Brian Posehn's stand-up material, you can tell that his mark is all over Deadpool #3. It's intentionally crude, but in a good way. This new iteration of Deadpool comics is thoroughly enjoyable and I can't wait for Deadpool #4. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jimmy Dec 13, 2012

    If you're a fan of comedy, you need to be picking up this book. If you're a fan of zombies and horrifying art, you need to be picking up this book. If you're a fan of Deadpool, you need to be picking up this book. This book appeals to a lot of different audiences, and appeals to each one in such a way that it shouldn't alienate the others. From the very title of the issue "Dr. Strange Lives (or how I learned Deadpool was da bomb)" you know this book is going to hit you with a ridiculous level of puns and one-liners, and Posehn and Duggan deliver it with an incredibly tight script. It's clear these guys have experience in writing for television, and I'm really glad they've made the jump to comics. Deadpool #3 gets a solid rating of four out of five stars for being a goofy and enjoyable comedic popcorn-flick of a comic book. Read Full Review

    Digitl Noob - Russ Pirozek Dec 8, 2012

    Deadpool is finally beginning to work his way back to the form of old, as some of his trademark humor has returned. While not all of it back, it's getting better steadily, which will hopefully remain consistent as the book continues. The art style is gaining some momentum as well, becoming a consistent method of visual storytelling, which will only help the book later on. Not a perfect issue by any means,Deadpool is getting there, and with some continued tweaks and progressions, this book could get into great form. Read Full Review

    I definitely thought that the book could be better, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit. Deadpool #3 is worth your money. Or chimichangas, if your comic book store is into that.  Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Dec 5, 2012

    The recommendation for this book is to trust your instincts. If you liked issue #1 and #2, you'll probably be happy enough with this issue. If you were waiting for a drastic upswing in cleverness or storytelling, you may leave disappointed. Personally, I was frustrated that I found the letters page significantly more entertaining than the previous twenty-some pages. In the end though, Deadpool #3 is another capricious jag into escapism that is no more or less than it advertises. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Dec 5, 2012

    Maybe it’s all the (un)dead presidents but it’s kind of hard to really get into the series no matter how beloved Deadpool is. Beyond that there’s really not a whole lot to say about the subject. The only reason to continue getting this is to hold on to a fraction of the hope that the writers finally, finally, (once all these ridiculous presidents are rid of), get into the nitty gritty of Deadpool, the twisted humor and such. There’s nothing wrong with light humor and Deadpool, it’s Wade Wilson, he can pull anything off, but there’s also so much more to him as well. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Marcell Dec 5, 2012

    Focusing a bit more on plot in this issue, Deadpool still continues to be a good read, but the weak writing, weak action scenes, and awkward moments overshadow the good in this issue. While the magic that made issues one and two so good have faded a bit, they are by no means gone. I still recommend this book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Dec 4, 2012

    "Deadpool" is kind of a stupid comic, and it probably sees that as a great compliment. This issue will make you laugh, wince and laugh again. Posehn and Duggan make this single issue serve the overall plot while also being a pretty easy to read standalone segment to be enjoyed on its own. Deadpool is a yammering fool desperate to make you laugh. While that wears thin quickly, this tale is suited to him and generally plays to his strengths. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Dec 6, 2012

    With an unnecessary amount of fourth-wall-breaking and the cheesy one-liners quickly wearing thin, Im losing my patience with this book. Its a fun read with great art if youre looking for mindless bloody hijinks, which I'm sure works for some readers. Still, longtime fans will probably be turned off by the diluted characterization and jokey dialogue that has become the norm with this title. Im hoping it picks up, but as it stands now, I'm not a fan. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 4, 2012

    When your guest stars feel more at home with the plot than your main character (and is essentially giving your hero the actual tools they need to succeed), I'd argue something has gone wrong with your story. Deadpool could have been a wicked funny grindhouse sort of story, but instead it's a sort of tired Bugs Bunny-meets-zombies kick. The jokes don't make you laugh, the action doesn't make you gasp, the character doesn't make you care. This one might be too much for even the Regeneratin' Degenerate to come back from.

    I take back everything I said about this series. I wasn't convinced by the first issue, but after three fantastic issues of all-consuming hilarity and hijinks, I'm sold! Deadpool is incredible. It's been a good while since I've laughed so hard in a comic book. There are so many jokes and comedic references that some of them will pass right over your head. From the Kool-Aid man reference from DP or the random fact-giving of Gerald Ford, this issue does not let up. It's not deep or intense, so don't go in expecting epic story-telling. It's just amazingly funny and off-the-wall. I can't believe I'm saying this, but based on the three previous issues, Deadpool is one of the best titles on the shelves. I hope they can keep it at this level. READ THIS BOOK.

    The story slowed a little, but still overall awesome. The art is as solid as ever and the writing is hilarious. More, more, more!
